Went in for breakfast. Got order fairly quickly but the cook was faster than the barista. One order specified no onions due to an allergy but had them anyway. The toast was wonderful bread but it was just warmed bread. Not toast at all. Guess that’s why it was fast. Yuk.

Great coffee, tea, baked goods in a wonderful atmosphere! Don’t miss this local favorite! Take a break as you cruise Waynesville or start your day here before shopping!

We waited over 45 minutes for our food! This is an order at the counter, serve yourself drink kind of place. The bakery items looked great in the cases. We ordered cannoli, which was overly sweet. The long wait was totally unnecessary for food that only needed to be reheated (quiche) with a potato casserole that was probably made ahead in large pans. We were not the only ones who waited this long. A group of 8-10 were ahead of us, which we were told caused our delay, but any server could have dished our food up and delivered it in a timely manner. Poor kitchen management to allow this to happen on a late Saturday morning on a holiday weekend. The quiche had too much thyme and potatoes were over peppered. And we tipped when we ordered for a guy to simply deliver our food to the table. There was no ‘service’ to speak of that deserved any kind of ‘tip,’ which is a whole other subject. Will not go back or recommend. An experience like this when you’re on vacation can sure ruin your day.

My son and I eat breakfast here almost every weekend. The pastries are always fresh and HUGE. The breakfast is fantastic, gravy biscuit is delicious, egg plates are excellent. I've never gotten anything I didn't like. The staff are all so helpful, energetic and friendly. I really enjoy the environment.

Visited for the first time and the food was very good and nice size portions. The biscuit and sausage gravy was really good, a tad on the spicy side but tasty. Nice atmosphere and staff.
